YEYO!! IS IN THE BUILDING...THATS THE BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY CAFE...YOU ARE ALREADY KNOW WHEN SHE STEPS IN THE BUILDING...FIRE TRUCKS ARE ALREADY ON STANDBY... @7:00pm EST
Born in a small southern town called Jesup, GA, this 26 year old woman of the word, began writing poetry at the tender age of 11 years old. Melanie YeYo Carter was published for the very first time, while in the 8th grade, in an edition of “An Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans”. She spent the following 7 years developing a personal relationship with her pen & finding her voice.
Her passion & love for the art form continued to flourish. During this time, she began to accept that writing poetry was much more than just a ‘hobby’ to her. Writing poetry was a significant part of her existence. So, she began to walk into the shoes of her poetic birthright.
Although she had been a POET for years, she did not carry the title Spoken Word Artist until that faithful moment in August of 2006. That night, in a small restaurant called Mary Helens (Hampton, VA), she walked onto her first stage. Then, she was still just Melanie Carter, but when she walked away from the mic, ‘YeYo’ had been born.
